Elizabeth and Khaled called me the day before their wedding date to see if I was available to photograph their wedding, and I was so excited that I still had the date available. I didn't know it yet, but their Lone Tree Hill elopement in Belmont would be one of my favorites this year!
I parked in the Belmont Hill Club, and met up with Khaled and his groomsman. I talked him into doing a first look, as he hadn't seen Elizabeth yet that day. He agreed, wanting to capture the surprise of seeing her in her beautiful dress and veil. We found the perfect spot on the trail off Concord Ave., and I doubled back to grab Elizabeth. She looked so stunning in her sheath dress, and I couldn't wait for Khaled to see her!
After the first look, we headed to the pine tree-filled path and took some formals. It looked like they were in a pine forest!
Once we concluded some formal portraits in the pine path, it was time for E & K to get married! Their Justice of the Peace performed the readings, and spoke some words of wisdom, and the bride and groom both said a few words about one another to the group before making their vows. Two of their guests also performed readings, which made the ceremony very personalized and intimate.
Can we just take a minute to fully appreciate the splendor of this beautiful ceremony exit? Khaled just picks up Elizabeth like she's a feather, and carries her right down the pine path! It was so romantic.
Afterwards, we popped champagne to commemorate the newlyweds with their guests. It was such a delightful ceremony, and beautiful location.
